This plant-based take on a classic…and classy French soup is a lovely way to begin a special occasion feast.
Makes 4-5 servings
Place oil in a soup pot and sweat leeks and onions over medium heat until quite soft, but not browned, about 7 minutes. Stir in potatoes, water and milk, cover and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 30 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper, keeping the flavor light. Simmer 5 minutes more to develop flavors. Transfer soup, by ladles to a food processor or blender and puree until smooth. Serve garnished with fresh chives.
